Kershaw Showtime Knife Equal parts stylish and utilitarian, Kershaw's version of a gentleman's knife combines a compact size with a clean silhouette and a sleek two-toned finish.


Check out any discussions about “gentleman’s knives” and you’ll quickly discern there’s no single consensus as to what the term really means. Simply put, it can mean any of a hundred (or a thousand) things. The Kershaw Showtime is the outfit’s version of that traditional EDC blade.

Designed by Todd Rexford, it’s billed as a “non-traditional gentleman’s” version of a knife that’s equal parts dapper and utilitarian. It’s small enough to carry everywhere and attractive enough to be part of your ensemble, whether you’re dressed up for a gala, suited up for the office, or decked in technical threads for a day out in the water.


The Kershaw Showtime sports a three-inch blade – just the right size for a folder, making it perfectly functional for practical uses while nesting discreetly in your pocket. Styled to project elegant simplicity, the blade comes in a two tone finish that consists of black oxide on the grinds and stain-polish along the flats, with the handle coming in the same black oxide coat for a unified appearance. It comes in a clean and streamlined silhouette, with no thumb studs to interrupt the lines and a contoured handle enabling a solid grip.

Construction is 8Cr13MoV stainless steel for the blade, with the handle cut in similarly solid steel. Features include a decorative hex pivot in a satin polish finish, a frame lock for closing securely, Speedsafe-assisted opening that lets you deploy the blade with a simple push, and a reversible pocket clip to accommodate both left- and right-handed users.

Available now, the Kershaw Showtime is priced at $47.99.
